Are there any former teachers/educators turned truck drivers here?

I appreciate the input fellas. I actually do not have a problem with the kids. Now if I could give the adults a few swats, life would be much better! I especially enjoyed the "very old man" comment, by the way.

I appreciate the input. Errol, I actually have more than "a few" years until retirement which is why I am considering the career change. Take your frustration and burnout in the classroom and multiply that by 25 (since you like math) and you get the idea of what I face as an administrator. I like driving and enjoy solitude and have always had the desire to go OTR. You seem happy with your decision, yes?

I am currently a school principal with a long way to go until retirement and was interested in any feedback from teachers that left education for the trucking industry. I pretty much grew up in a cabover in the 70's and 80's and trucking has always been in my blood, but life just took me a different direction. I would like to hear your experiences and if you are happy with you choice or maybe what would you have done differently. Thanks.
